Paraguayan watchdog Consejo Nacional de Telecomunicaciones (Conatel) has indicated that it is looking to auction off advanced wireless services (AWS) spectrum in the 1700MHz and 2100MHz frequency bands as early as the first half of 2014, as it seeks to encourage competition within the mobile sector. Speaking to TeleSemana, Conatel president Eduardo Gonzalez noted: ‘We have some international operators who have made an expression of interest in that band. It is important to generate maximum competition in both the access and the service’. While he warned that the watchdog would not proceed in haste, Gonzalez expects the tender to take place during 1H14.
